Software License records

Using the Software Licenses component you can manage software licenses that your company owns.

If you want to track the license compliance for your software products, you must create Tracked Software records for each software product you want to track, create Software License records for each software license that your company owns, and specify license compliance rules for each Software License record.

NOTE: A Software License record can be associated with a Tracked Software record. This is how you establish links between Software Products imported from Network Inventory and Software Licenses. One Tracked Software record can be associated with multiple Software License records.

To access the Software Licenses grid, select either Software > Software Licenses in the Sidebar, or Go > Software Licenses from the main menu.

To access the list of Software Licenses associated with a particular Tracked Software record, open this record and locate the Licenses section on the General tab of the Tracked Software window.

New Software Licences can be created from the Software Licenses grid, Software License window, and the Licenses section of the General tab of the Tracked Software window. Typically, Alloy Navigator Express also automatically creates Software License records when you receive Purchase Order Items of the Software type.

The top pane of an open Software License window displays the Software License's name, ID, and status. The list of possible statuses is defined by your Alloy Navigator Express administrator.

Below the top pane, the following tabs are available:
